Skate 4 pre-alpha footage has leaked, giving a first look at the gameplay

As you can see, the game is far from finished, with Grubb pointing out that the team is aiming to “get the feel right” first and foremost. There’s definitely potential in what we’re seeing here, with some nice animation and what looks like fluid motion from board tricks to somersaults and, inevitably, some bone-crunching crashes.

For years, fans have been clamouring for a return to EA’s Skate franchise, and the publisher finally delivered in 2020. The planned new game from developer Full Circle, tentatively titled Skate 4, is currently in full production, and a new trailer circulating online provides us a sketchy indication of how things are moving. A small video of pre-alpha gameplay footage of the game, which is reportedly in the early stages of playtesting, has surfaced online. The clip’s original source has been removed, but not before others, including VentureBeat’s Jeff Grubb, got their hands on it.
